The Blakerow is a carbine with a high rate of fire compared to its bolt-action predecessor. This increased fire rate does come at the cost of innate stopping power; however, its versatility and lightweight frame more than make up for any perceived shortcomings.
In-game description

The Blakerow 871 is a warden semi-automatic carbine best suited for short to mid range engagements. It has a slightly lower damage and range than the standard bolt-action warden Rifle.

Description[]

The carbine has about double the possible higher rate of fire compared to the standard Warden No.2 Loughcaster. Although shot do on average slightly less damage, the Damage Per Second is significantly increased. Compared to the Colonial Argenti r.II, which also operates like a carbine, it provides a slightly higher rate of fire and DPS, as well as a slight increased range of fire.

Additionally, the Blakerow also offers a quick loading speed, and weights the same as the Argenti. However, its production cost is 40% higher than that of the standard rifles.

It usually kills in 3 hits, although by chance 2 can suffice.

Use[]

The Blakerow operates well in medium ranges and closes the gap between the Loughcaster rifle and Fiddler SMG, also being able to contest in short ranges with many weapons thanks to its high rate of fire. Because the carbine is part of the rifle category, it can equip a Bayonet. This increases the weapons close range combat abilities significantly (the Bayonet instant-killing soldiers).

However, the Blakerow suffers from inaccuracy on longer ranges if fired quickly; in some cases it can be useful to reduce your rate of fire to ensure hits on enemies. Crouching or standing behind cover helps reducing this issue.

Historical Reference[]

The Blakerow 871 appears to be based on the American M1 Carbine.
